According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), Brussels, Belgium, about 382 million people or about 5% of the total population of the world is affected with one type of diabetes or another and the dreaded disease kills one person about every six seconds and those figures are constantly rising.

The IDF also claims that figure will increase by the year 2035 to about 592 million sufferers because of unhealthy eating habits and the current trends in overweight or obese people worldwide.

The IDF also publishes a Diabetes Atlas every two years and according to their project coordinator, Leonor Guaringuata, the number of people suffering from diabetes is not slowing down at all, in fact the numbers are growing at an astronomical rate.

However, the IDF has come up with a solution that may help the enormous spending that governments around the world have to make to treat and cure this growing disease, calculated to be about $548 billion worldwide.

They reckon that obtaining the help of celebrities, such as Jamie Oliver, the famous British chef, restaurateur and media personality better known as “The Naked Chef,” may enlighten the public to the dangers of unhealthy eating habits.

Oliver has been helping the IDF as has the celebrity chef and diabetes advocate Charles Mattocks, the nephew of Bob Marley. Both chefs are advocating better eating habits as a way to prevent the spread of diabetes.

According to the IDF, the number of deaths attributed to diabetes worldwide per year is about 5.1 million and another 10 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed every year.

According to figures from the Danish pharmaceutical manufacturer, Novo Nordisk, about 1 million amputations are performed every year because of diabetes, almost 1.5 million people are blinded by the disease every year and a further half million patients suffer kidney failure.

However, the disease which normally affects adults in the age range of 40 to 59 years old is now spreading to younger adults, according to Guariguata. She adds that the spread of the disease is surpassing the growing population in the world.
